John grew up attending small churches in Tennessee. As a teenager, God graciously opened his eyes to his sin and need of a savior. John accepted Christ at that time and began his journey with the Lord.
He moved to Minnesota in 1990 where he met and married his lovely wife, Kelly. John grew spiritually as he and Kelly faithfully attended a solid, gospel-preaching church. Discipleship was an important part of their spiritual growth. Through regular Bible studies, church activities and intentional fellowship, John and Kelly witnessed the Christian life modeled by those within the church. Those early years helped to form their view of what church life together should be. John desires to serve the Lord by serving his brothers and sisters in the local assembly.
John was in both the US Air Force and the Air National Guard for a total of 11 years. After serving in the military, John began working in manufacturing and is currently a production supervisor.
In his off-time, John enjoys being outdoors. Hunting, fishing, golfing and 4-wheeling are among his favorite activities.
